"Lots of noise out back last night.... just a few Canada geese landed in the bay (about 10,000)... this is a small fraction of the flock...

Shot handheld with a 70-200 at 200mm and 1/250 second and stitched together.... had to do it in a hurry or be late for work..."

Thanks for that perspective - very nice.

This little chap was one of my first really good shots with my Sigma 150-500mm, I’ve only been at it for a little over 1 year but I’m happy with my progress considering that I can rarely find the time to get out here in Dubai, I’m planning a morning outing this weekend as the cooler months have arrived, if I could create shots half as stunning as some of the images in this thread I would be a very happy man, grateful for any critique.  It’s a Grey Francolin, shot at ISO 200, f5.6, 300th on a 550D.
Thanks.

Here are three owls: an Eastern Screech Owl, a Great Horned Owl, and a Barred Owl.

Very nice Jock!  Now if you could just get him to walk toward you!  That's always half the battle, no?  lol!  First one I've seen, thanks for sharing!

Autumn in southeast Arizona means that Ferruginous Hawks are arriving in the flatlands and grasslands.  Here's one taking off, photographed yesterday on the Santa Cruz Flats, about halfway between Tucson and Phoenix.  5Diii. 400DO, "M" setting, 1/1600 @ f7.1.
Beautiful Steven!

Those are simply fantastic! I like #'s 1 and 3 the best.

Thank you Sir!  I didn't care for the building in the distance behind him but it's not too noticeable I suppose!  Thank you again!

Thanks for the comment Krob, really appreciated  ;)
My outing is going ahead tomorrow morning, hopefully they’ll be walking towards me this time (LOL), so I may have some keepers if all goes well, keeping my fingers crossed.

P.S. those owl shots are awesome Pugshot!!!
